The Bearcats have added yet another prospect to their 2015 recruiting class. According to his Twitter, '15 JUCO OG DeLonte Murray has committed to UC and will sign with the program tomorrow.
I went with my gut feeling and I will be signing my NLI to play for The University of Cincinnati tomorrow!! #GoBearCats— DeLonte' Murray (@LonteBasedGod) December 16, 2014
The 6'5, 311-pounder is an important addition for the incoming class. Murray chose Cincinnati over offers from Akron, Bethune-Cookman, Eastern Michigan, James Madison, Southern Miss, Toledo, Western Michigan and Kansas, who he was previously committed to since June. The three officials visits for the two-star prospect went to the Bearcats, Kansas and Toledo.
The Lackawanna (PA) offensive lineman grades out on the JUCO scale as the 7th overall player at his position, the 2nd in the state of Pennsylvania and the 190th player in the country.
Murray will be joining Reed Armagost, Evan Mallory and Tyler McGarr in the offensive lineman room lead with Coach Darren Hiller. He is also the third JUCO player in the class joining Antonio Kinard and Jaylyin Minor.
The addition of Murray extends it's lead on UCF for the No. 1 class in the American Athletic Conference and inches UC a bit closer to California for the 58th ranked recruiting class in the country. However, '15 ATH Frank Labady, who will be joining the Bearcats in a few weeks, is not included in Cincinnati's list of commitments.
